Paul Robeson Theatre at the African American Cultural Center
The gospel musical by Regina King about African-American church ladies and their relationships to their hats, Crowns, proves to be a perfect vehicle for the Paul Robeson Theatre company. This crew of six ladies and one gentleman score a bull’s-eye, singing and dancing their way through this rousing and inspirational show. There’s not a weak link: Annette Christian, Beverly Crowell, Denise Smith, Falisha Young, Mary Craig, Vallana M. Harris, and Terry Wideman demonstrate what it means to embrace your heritage through fashion—and show how a great ensemble can make a modest little show soar to the heights!
